Konrad Ventana

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — From the very first page, to the final departing scene, ‘The Unbearable Sadness of Zilch’ (ISBN: 9781440158261) by Konrad Ventana is a riveting narrative that shines a detective’s flashlight into the darkest of reaches of the human mind. Only this time it is not the usual hard-boiled Private Detective who is called upon to find some hidden Truth, it is the philosophical practitioner or ‘Perspicuous Eye’ who is called upon to find the lost Beauty.

The Unbearable Sadness of Zilch – New Novel Exposes Hollywood Hyper-reality in Intimate Private Investigation

Konrad Ventana

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — No one is innocent … not in this town. In this town, the apocalypse has come and gone, lifting the veil of innocence like a great velvet curtain in an old movie house, where the only victims that don’t return for the sequel are the gods themselves, struck out long ago by the big blue pencil. In this town, every man, woman, and child takes the limits of his or her own field of vision to be the limits of the world. In his latest novel, ‘The Unbearable Sadness of Zilch’ (ISBN: 9781440158261), Konrad Ventana explodes the myths behind the Star Machine with a whole new level of intimate private investigation.

Not since The Day of the Locust and The Love of the Last Tycoon has Hollywood and the motion picture industry been shown in such a bold and perspicuous light, a light that producers and directors and screenwriters are clamoring to capture for themselves. Brimming with sex, romance, eye-widening spectacle, and a host of recognizable characters, this latest post-lux novella by Konrad Ventana sets a new standard of poignancy in postmodern literary fiction.

In ‘A Desperado’s Daily Bread’ (ISBN: 978-0595521548), Konrad Ventana throws open the curtain to a perennial drama.
